Based on the international bestselling non-fiction book by LA Times journalist Barbara Demick. Written and directed by double-BAFTA award winning filmmaker Andy Glynne, this is a ground-breaking feature length animation about the most impenetrable and secretive country in the world – North Korea. Based on real testimony of ordinary North Koreans, and their desperate fight for survival, this is the incredible and unique story of a real-life Orwellian nightmare. It’s a film which tells of the bravery, triumph, optimism and love against a backdrop of some of the worst abuses of human rights in the world, and the forces which led six ordinary people – against all odds – to eventually escape.
